The collection of electronically stored information (ESI) is more complicated than ever given the popularity of mobilised workplace realities and cloud environments. Our in-house collections team will work with you to efficiently identify and collect the respondent data you need to progress your case.
Potential data evidence can be found everywhere - from mobile devices, to desktop computers, to networked storage, through to cloud storage. Our certified technicians are expertly trained in all forms of data collection and gathering ESI according to industry standards to provide the strongest defensible position.
Text messages, emails and files are deleted every day. If that day happens to be during a period of enforced data preservation, such data could be key evidence in a case. Our experienced technicians recover and extract deleted file data - evidence that; in less experienced hands, could be lost forever.
Judges and Counsel often find it necessary to appoint neutral, third-party experts to assist in handling and interpreting digital data. SLS’s team of technicians can assist in the execution of search orders. Or we can work with both parties to conduct discovery to an agreed list in sensitive cases or those involving privilege.
ESI has to be preserved when litigation has been filed or an internal investigation is needed. To be admissible and defensible, the data must be properly collected and stored - improper data collection and preservation can result in sanctions and other consequences.
Preserving data is becoming more and more challenging given the tremendous volumes, sources and types of data potentially involved. SLS’s team of technicians can assist you in properly preserving your data, and will work with you to choose the right tools and processes to ensure all relevant data is collected and remains intact. Our team will work closely with you to ensure your data is safely and defensibly preserved.
SLS mobile discovery uses the same technology as law enforcement to collect, preserve and analyse mobile device data for import into SLS hosted eDiscovery platforms; or any other review platform that accepts standard load files. This enables legal and investigation teams to search, review and produce mobile device evidence alongside traditional forms of ESI.
